Over the weekend I spent some time compiling a menu plan for the whole month. It didn’t take too long once I got together all our diary events for March.
It turns out that I need to plan for 18 main meals and 8 weekend brunches. Not too bad for a 31 day month, and this should help me to stay within my £200 grocery budget…although I do need to re-stock the freezer.
+ Fish Fillets x 4
+ Chicken Mini Fillets x 5 (meals)
+ 300g Raspberries
+ Salmon Fishcakes x 2
+ Peppers x 1.5 bags
+ Peas 0.75 of a bag
+ Corn 0.5 of a bag
+ Bread 0.5 of a loaf
Our freezer is (still) fairly empty and so part of my plans this month are to fill it back up – I also need to re-stock a few store cupboard items (baked beans etc) and so I’ll be doing this too. Hopefully the reduced amount of main meals needed should cover the cost of everything.
Our menu plan this week is very short as I’m going to London for a few days.
+ Pizza & Salad
+ Simple Chicken Curry with Rice and Naan
+ Roasted Sweet Potatoes & Veggies with Sausages
Ok that’s it for today!
